“Over the last couple of years, Madison songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Stephanie Rearick has emphasized her playful side, releasing a bouncy jangly lo-fi pop record with her band Ladyscissors last year and embracing the chintzy wonders of a Casio keyboard’s preprogrammed drumbeats and synth sounds on 2013’s Dreamworld (released under the name Stephanie Rearick Jr.). A bit of that rubs off on Rearick’s new solo album, Every Thing Everything, which she’ll celebrate at this show. on Rearick’s new solo album, Every Thing Everything, which she’ll celebrate at this show. But this time Rearick is going for something a little more sparse, returning to the elements that have been key to her solo albums over the past 15 years: stately piano, clear high-register vocals that at times accompany mischievous turns of phrase, and some appearances from Rearick’s trumpet. A few tracks (“Stolen Presents,” “Paper Dolls” and “Blues-Suite For Microtonal Piano,” the latter drawn from experimental composer Ben Johnston) are meditative instrumentals, and “Everyone Singing” layers Rearick’s voice into a somber round over subtly dissonant drones. Somewhere in between are the flitting, strangely touching melodies and slightly volatile piano of “Make Believe,” and a couple of covers from Rearick’s Uvulittle Records labelmates Jenny Magnus and Maestro Subgum And The Whole, making for an efficient yet wide-ranging 11 tracks.”– Tone Madison by Scott Gordon, May 27, 2015.
